The GRAND OLE OPRY celebrated 62-year OPRY veteran LITTLE JIMMY DICKENS’ 90th birthday on DECEMBER 18th (the day before his actual birthday on the 19th). OPRY member and DICKENS’ good friend, ARISTA/NASHVILLE star BRAD PAISLEY, led the audience in singing “Happy Birthday” as OPRY members JEANNIE SEELY, BILL ANDERSON and JIM ED BROWN rolled out DICKENS’ birthday cake.
Throughout the show, TWITTER and FACEBOOK birthday greetings from some of his fellow Country artists and fans from around the world poured in. Fellow OPRY member, SHOW DOG – UNIVERSAL MUSIC artist TRACE ADKINS, visited JIMMY over his birthday weekend, and a video of their conversation is available now at www.opry.com.
